I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry if my first post is really negative.
For the past year and a half or more, I have been slowly declining deeper and deeper into depression. This week I had a nervous breakdown, and now I am seeking medical attention (Monday is my first appointment with a psychiatrist).
I'm only seventeen, female.
I'm not fat right now by any means. But I am different than I used to be. For my entire life I was tiny. I ate well but remained small. I think part of the problem is that this year I have oddly started CRAVING sugar (I used to not really like sugary foods). I binge on cookies, ice cream, cakes, etc. My entire body is pretty thin but...this is embarrassing...my ass has grown a lot.
My mom pointed it out and I was mortified. That was always one thing I never had to worry about.
This is my question - I obviously can't try to really lose weight until my depression clears with medication, because when I do try I just go through binge/starve cycles. but I need a little reassurance. do you think that this weight gain can be fixed?
Do you think it won't be a big problem once I am not rock-bottom depressed? Any advice?
